Welcome to Wolfenbüttel


Alles mit Bedacht’ ('Everything with prudence') was the expression favoured by Duke August II (1579–1666), who founded Wolfenbüttel’s famous library and turned the town into a cultural centre in the mid-17th century.

First mentioned in records in 1118, Wolfenbüttel was virtually untouched by WWII, and it’s almost a time capsule of half-timbered houses: there are more than 600 of them, almost all beautifully restored. It's also the home of the potent, herb-flavoured liqueur Jägermeister, which was invented here in 1934.
